Following his arrest on Wednesday (January 2), Juelz Santana posted his $125,000 bail.
The rapper was arrested after police found marijuana and weapons in his New Jersey recording studio last month. He was taken into custody on four counts of narcotic and weapons charges.
Upon his release, the Dipset rapper took to Twitter to let his followers know that he was out, all the while maintaining his innocence.
A! Out on bail $125k.. NO 10% Thanks for all the love and support! PS. Sellin dime bags!? LMFAO!
Santana discussed the matter with MTV News, saying he’s been targeted by New Jersey police.
“Jersey, their laws is a little bit different. I’m definitely a target out here just because of who I am,” he explained. “They pull me over… [there’s] only one way to get to my studio, so every day I gotta take that route when I’m going to my studio in Jersey, so I get pulled over at least three times a week, ’cause they know all my cars. They looking to get me, regardless,” he said. “I don’t know why. I haven’t done anything. I do music. I’m not selling drugs like they said I was doing. I’m not doing none of those things. So at the end of the day, I just don’t understand their need to imply all the things that they trying to imply.”
